Mr. Feece began his real estate career in 1992 after he attained his B.A. in Business Management from Saint Mary’s College (Moraga, California). Mr. Feece spent his first seven years working for his father, John, at Sierra Management, Inc., in Los Gatos, California, initially on the accounting side until he became Sierra Management’s Director of Operations.
Responsible for the overall operations of the firm’s portfolio, Mr. Feece developed specific initiatives that streamlined operations while keeping the tenants’ best interests in mind. His knowledge of accounting helped him identify where the firm’s resources would best be utilized. This led him to assume the role of Vice President of Property Management for Interstate Equities Corporation in July of 2000, where he honed his skills, improving their assets and learning how to prepare them to be returned to market in 2-3 years with higher rental rates and consequently higher rates of return. Mr. Feece then returned to Sierra Management as its President in August of 2002.
He applied what he learned about portfolio management and developed the fee management side of the business. In October 2004 as his interests turned toward syndication, he and his father joined forces again to establish Feece Real Estate Group, both as a brokerage and value-added investment company. Mr. Feece has been providing Commercial Real Estate Financing expertise since 2012.
